One may take a closer look at the rich mangrove ecosystem fostered by the locals while supporting a community livelihood. This is a testimony to a great partnership between the environment and the local community, especially to boost the city’s tourism. Indeed, Ormoc Mangroves Eco-Park sets an equilibrium led by the Naungan San Juan Mangrove Planters Association (NSJMPA) and several small-scale fishermen. Located in Brgy. Naungan, Ormoc City, this mangrove park that opened in 2017 has amazed the residents and the tourists alike with what it can offer. Aside from a mangrove tour, locals and other equally important tourists can do bird watching, mud swimming, kayak rides, paddle boat rides, and fishing, which they should not miss. To make the visit even more memorable, they also offer sumptuous foods there, including freshly caught seafood. Standing by their core, visitors can organize a tree-planting activity in the area. Get excited to appreciate the beauty and use of mangroves, and on top of that, keep an eye on the biodiversity that it has and the locals' wide smiles.
